Is the cost of living in Gambia high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Gambia, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Gambia is generally considered to be quite low. Basic necessities such as food, transportation, and housing are relatively inexpensive compared to other countries. Prices for imported goods, however, can be higher than in other countries. The local currency, the Dalasi, is also relatively weak compared to other currencies, making it difficult to purchase items from abroad," explained one expat.
